[wp-hackers] Files associated with table *_users

Well, I started messing around with a test plug-in... it's a bit
tricky trying to find exactly when and where to do things. But,
basically I've come to this conclusion:

I think, if I override the functions in pluggables.php that use
$wpdb->users and $wpdb->usermeta, I might just be able to sneak in the
SMF functions I need to pull that data instead.

I can use SMF groups to simulate the Roles and let WP deal with the
Capabilities assigned to the roles. Of course, the 10 levels would be
user configurable in the plug-in to point to the different user groups
in SMF.

So, if I can just map the SMF fields to the WP fields (WP 2.2.2) I may
be golden.

So, basically:

And map SMF fields to WP fields so WP is tricked into thinking they
came from the WP database.

I might have to work on all the user stuff that can be overridden, but
I'll have to look at that as well.

Does this sound about right to you guys?
